Today marks the launch of Pantene’s second annual National Donate Your Hair Week in Australia, which sees hair donation events taking place across the country.  Pantene ambassador Barney Martin is encouraging people to get involved by pledging their ponytails to the cause, and shares some of his favourite short hairstyles. And in seems short hair is one of the hottest celebrity hairstyles right now, with everyone from Jennifer Lawrence to Pamela Anderson cutting their hair short!

“There’s no better reason to go short than Pantene Beautiful Lengths, and Pantene’s National Donate Your Hair Week is a great opportunity to chop off your ponytail,” says Barney. Short, sleek styles are in this summer and there’s a style to suit all face shapes, so what are you waiting for – pledge your ponytail today!”

If you’re considering going short and donating your ponytail to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program, but not quite sure if the look will work for you, Barney gives his reasons why short can work for every occasion. Now you can help a cancer patient in Australia and New Zealand deal with one of the effects of cancer treatment and rock a new look at the same time.

Boardroom
A cute pixie crop with a side part is the perfect grown up look to take you to the top in the boardroom.

Work event
Sweep the front of hair back off face to create a voluminous crown, and use pins to secure hair pulled back at the sides. The elegant look works well with chin length hair blow dried to turn in slightly at the ends.
Tip: Use the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Strengthening Collection to smooth hair and help repair damage to prepare hair for this sleek look.

Night out
Up the glam stakes for a night out with a layered shoulder length cut, with waves and subtle side fringe.

Date night
Go smooth and sleek with a glossy cut finishing just below your chin. Complete the look with a blunt fringe sitting just above your eyes for maximum impact.
Tip: Use Pantene Styling Treatment Foam Smooth Straight before blow-drying for a smooth finish.

Music Concert
For extra edge, a bleach blonde undercut is an ultra-cool way to rock a short style.

Beach break
For the ultimate in easy holiday styling, make the most of a low maintenance jaw length bob tousled by salt and sun. Opt for an eyebrow-grazing fringe for a playful edge.
Tip: Use Pantene Styling Treatment Mist Soft Curls to help keep waves soft and touchable.

Pantene Beautiful Lengths is the first program of its kind in Australia and New Zealand to inspire women to grow cut and donate their hair to be turned into real hair wigs for women undergoing cancer treatment.

Since launch, over 6,000 ponytails have been donated to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. This year, help Pantene create even more real-hair wigs by growing your hair long and strong with the new Pantene Beautiful Lengths Strengthening Collection before you donate.
